December 18, 2009|By Frederick N. Rasmussen

Patricia A. Wade, a retired medical secretary and longtime member of Fulton Baptist Church, died Dec. 8 of complications from diabetes at Manor Care Catonsville. She was 55.

Patricia Ann Worsham was born in Baltimore and raised on Parkwood Avenue.

After graduating from Northwestern High School in 1973, she attended a medical secretarial school.

She began her career in the mid-1970s at Johns Hopkins Hospital as a medical unit secretary and worked at several other area hospitals in a similar capacity.

Mrs. Wade had worked for four years at Good Samaritan Hospital before her recent retirement.

A longtime resident of Yale Avenue, Mrs. Wade began her lifelong association with Fulton Baptist Church in the early 1960s when she sang with the youth choir.

She later served as a member of the usher board and other committees.

Mrs. Wade enjoyed traveling and attending or arranging family dinners.

A sister, Pamela Lomax of Upper Marlboro, said that Mrs. Wade's travels always "provided her with a number of fond memories and funny stories that she routinely reflected upon."

Services will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at her church, 1630 W. North Ave.

Also surviving are her husband of 11 years, Edward Wade; a son, Jarmel Worsham of Baltimore; two brothers, James Lee Worsham Jr. and Alvin Worsham, both of Baltimore; another sister, Phyllis Brown of Baltimore; two granddaughters; and many cousins.
